on

Corbin Bleu is an American actor, dancer, producer and singer, perhaps best known for playing Chad Danforth in the “High School Musical” series. Read on to learn everything about this multi-talented Hollywood superstar.

Early Life, Family, Educational Background

Corbin Bleu Reivers was born on 21 February 1989 under the zodiac sign of Pisces, to Martha Callari and David Reivers, in Brooklyn, New York City USA. His mother Martha Callari is Italian, while his father David Reivers is Jamaican, so Corbin is bi-racial and holds dual nationality from Jamaica and Italy. However, in an interview with BET, he said that he identifies as Black when it comes to film roles.

Corbin was raised with his three younger sisters, Jag, Phoenix and Hunter Reivers. Theirs is a family of actors – his father David was an actor, and so was Joseph Callari, his great-uncle. Corbin knew what he wanted to become at an early age, and his parents prepared him for stardom.

He landed his first gig at age two, appearing in a commercial for Life Cereals, and went on to appear in commercials for Nabisco, Hasbro, and Bounty. He also studied dance as a child, specializing in jazz and ballet.

At age four, he signed with Ford Modeling Agency, New York, and appeared in fashion spreads and print ads for brands such as Target, Toys R Us, and American Baby Magazine. At six, he was already taking parts in Scott Siegel’s off-Broadway production at The Town Hall, Manhattan.

Corbin and his parents relocated to Los Angeles, California in 1996, enabling him to pursue an acting career on a larger scale. He attended Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, then attended the Debbie Allen Dance Academy. In 2007, Corbin matriculated from Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School, where he was a theater major (like his mother). He was accepted into Stanford University but declined the offer due to his schedule.
